At present, the most effective method to acquire subscribers for a service is through referral program. Such programs generally entail an individual or a collective group. For instance, on YouTube, an individual is offered an extra discount on the regular price for subscribing to YouTube Premium subscription. Moreover, in return, the referrer receives some form of reward as a gesture of gratitude for this YouTube subscription.
In February of last year, YouTube established a referral program for YouTube TV, and now, the major online video platform service has also initiated a referral programme for You Tube Premium subscriptions. Also Read – How to transfer Google Play Music to YouTube Music?

Premium YouTube price in India
One of the prime questions that arise is, how much is YouTube Premium subscription for? As per official reports, the YouTube Premium membership price starts at USD 11.99/month in the US. But with the referral link, the referred users will only have to pay USD 0.99 for three months. Similarly, in India, the You Tube Premium signup with the referral link will cost only Rs 10 for three months.
Meanwhile, the regular price of a You Tube Premium subscription in India is Rs 129 per month. Remember, the new discounted price will only apply to first-time subscribers. Meanwhile, this offer is not available to the former Premium subscribers. You can visit official YouTube India website for more price details regarding this Premium service.
Now, how to add someone to YouTube Premium? If a person signs up for the Premium membership and pays with the referral link, they will also get an additional You Tube Premium subscription for up to 12 months. FYI, the You Tube Premium referral program runs till May 31, 2023. Therefore, we have plenty of time to get as many users on board the service as possible. Additionally, there are some regional limitations, and this is because the referral programme is still inactive in most European countries.
How to get Premium YouTube subscription for family and friends?
Once the referral program is available, the referral program banner will automatically appear on the YouTube app for existing Premium subscribers. Furthermore, to check the YouTube referral program banner, first, open the YouTube app. Meanwhile, if the referral banner does not appear, follow the steps below,
1. Open YouTube app on your Android or iOS device.

How to keep track of YouTube Rewards?
To track the rewards, you need to keep track of rewards on the Reward Activity page. Furthermore, the Reward Activity page can be accessed from the Premium benefits section within the app. Remember, the referral programs are listed at the bottom of the page, and you can also access the referral link from here.
The referral link will work on both Android and iOS, and it will also work on the web. In our experience, the referral program promotion banner page is also currently missing on the YouTube iOS app. This could be likely due to restrictions from Apple, and another reason could be due to the regional limitations. But we can confirm that this program is currently active in the US and India. Also Read – Microsoft Windows 11 Update for YouTube video
